    I bought a Schubert E1.

    They're about 25k from Panda Rider.

    I found it to be front-heavy and I bought too big a size, so ended up selling it for about half what I paid for it.

    I now use a Real dual-sport helmet which is so much more comfortable and a tenth of the price, while still being a decent lid.

    Did you also post this question on Thai Visa ? If so I will refrain from repeating myself

    Still worth repeating as not all of us frequent thai visa and myself as well as other I'm sure are interested in folks opinions on different helmets as I'll also be in the market for a new lid soon :)

    I brought an LS2 FF324 Metro Firefly with me on the bird.

    Bought it because of the excellent airflow. Large channels in the top vent hot air out. Works great - first helmet here where my head doesn't get wet with sweat.

    Built in sun visor works great.

    The visor - took it off right away as it is just too flimsy. (Black in pic)

    The provided clear shield is not pinlock ready, but the replacements I brought with me are - strange.

    I wear ear plugs - but even without the noise is acceptable up to about 120

    Would replace it with the same if required. LS2.

    In Europe i use Sharp Evo one 2, not very good with ventilation, also Schuberth C4, didn’t like it at all, don't know why.

    Been search for a helmet with good ventilation, i have my eyes on this one: Nexx X Vilijord, brand new helmet X.VILIJORD - NEXX Helmets

    Should be with Panda next week

    Hopefully Shark will build a modular dual-sport helmet soon, as they (along with Real) are the only brand I've found that fit me comfortably.

    I've been most impressed with my Oneal, after using only Arai for decades
